Mid-Atlantic Baseball Association will be adjusting certain divisions for the upcoming 2017 spring season.
Because so many coaches have asked that we change the current 15/16 Division to a Junior Varsity and Varsity division (driven by graduation year, rather than birth date) for the high school age players, we will adopt this for the upcoming season. To play in the Junior Varsity Division, players must have a high school graduation date of 2019 or 2020. The Varsity Division is open to all players that have graduation dates in 2017, 2018, 2019 or 2020.
In addition to the new Junior Varsity and Varsity Fulltime Divisions, we will add a “Weeknight Only” Division in each. These divisions will be open to M.A.B.A. teams that wish to play (2) extra games per week and to outside teams that want to have weeknight games but keep their weekends free. Please note, there will be no tournament for the Weeknight Only Divisions, only for the Fulltime Divisions. The fee to participate in the weeknight divisions will be $100.00 for M.A.B.A. teams, and $200.00 for non-M.A.B.A.teams.
We have also joined forces with Montgomery County Baseball Association to form “Invitation Only” divisions as a trial pilot program (to see if we should expand to other age groups in the future) for the 10, and 11 year old 2017 Divisions. The teams that are invited will play in their normal Division 1 programs in their respective leagues, and play an additional doubleheader against other top teams in the area. Any team can asked to be considered, but there will be very limited teams accepted into the program. Once we receive a request, we will follow up for an interview with the manager and then a BOD comprised of representatives from both M.A.B.A. and M.C.B.A will evaluate the request for entry. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you want your team considered for either division.
